Standing Room Only At Auction Today

Mon, 02 Jan 2006
There was only one hall running today, but BCA put on a good sale for the bank holiday crowds at Blackbushe and more than a few drove home in bargains.

The 11,000 mile 03 reg MGTF 135 in the photo sold for £6,000. A 24k mile 02 reg MGTF Steptronic went for £5,400 and a 63k mile 2000W MGF 1.8 found a home at £3,750. The £6k 03 made most sense to me.

A 101k mile 02 reg Passat TDI PD 130 estate sold for £5,000, a 51k mile bright red 2002/52 Rover 25 1.4 Spirit (with alloys) for £2,550 and while a 132k mile 2000X Focus 1.6 Ghia 4-door started very low at £700, it went on to sell for £2,000.

It wasn’t always clear which cars sold, so I’ll list top bids and only state ‘sold’ when I’m pretty sure they did.
